Women’s Leadership Society
The United Way of Central Oklahoma Women’s Leadership Society unites women – their time, talent, and resources – into a powerful network of individuals devoted to enhancing and strengthening intergenerational opportunities within our community.
Membership requires an annual donation (combined with spouse or individual) of $2,500. The membership includes events throughout the year for networking, education, and volunteering.
Through the Women’s Leadership Society, we hope to mobilize women to strengthen our community by investing in and promoting United Way of Central Oklahoma, its Partner Agencies and its community initiatives.
